There are a number of nutrients which can help with memory loss. While more studies are needed, subjects with low levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) and Folic Acid (Vitamin B9) fared worse in memory tests than those with healthy amounts.
Pomegranate is filled with antioxidants and beneficial compounds that have been shown to potentially help with everything from fetal health to weight loss. In this latest study, subjects with self-reported memory problems were randomly assigned to receive 8 ounces of pomegranate juice or a placebo with similar flavor. Over a four-week study period, the subjects who received pomegranate juice saw significant improvement in their verbal memory tests and their plasma antioxidant levels. They even showed increased brain activity during memory and verbal testing, suggesting the juice helped encourage increased blood flow to “critical task-related” regions of the brain.

High Blood Pressure
When dealing with high blood pressure we have to increase our intake of healing foods: plenty of oily fish, omega-3 fish oils, chlorophyll-rich greens, mushrooms, bilberry, huckleberry, oat and rice bran, bananas, spirulina, chlorella and vitamin E (anti-coagulant).
Juicing is also effective for high blood pressure. Our recipe contains beetroot, apple, celery, cucumber and ginger. Sodium chloride (refined salt) increases blood pressure but the natural sodium in celery does exactly the opposite by decreasing blood pressure. Beetroot contains high levels of inorganic nitrate and is helpful for lowering and normalizing blood pressure. Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are abundant in nature, especially in fresh apples. These free-radical scavengers are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, and they show great promise in supporting healthy circulation, vein health are a natural supplement to lower blood pressure.

Note of warning: Check with your doctor before doing a lot of juicing, so you can avoid any potential problems. For instance, large amounts of foods high in vitamin K, such as kale and spinach, may change how the blood thinner warfarin works.
